Amazon Launches the Fire TV Stick

Amazon has officially launched the Fire TV Stick, a smaller and more inexpensive version of the Fire TV set-top box that was released earlier this year. The latest device from Amazon competes directly with Chromecast and the Roku Streaming Stick, offering improved functionality for a similar price. Like its competition, the Fire TV Stick plugs directly into an HDMI slot in order to stream movies and music, but the device differs greatly from its competition with its internal hardware. The Fire TV Stick features a dual-core processor that is 50 percent more powerful than Chromecast, twice the amount of RAM as Chromecast, and 32 times the storage than the Roku Streaming Stick. All of these enticing hardware features allow users of the Fire TV Stick to download and play games from the Amazon app store.

The Fire TV Stick from Amazon, which comes with a 1-year limited warranty, will be released on November 19, 2014. The device is available immediately to pre-order for $39, and Amazon Prime members can purchase the Fire TV Stick for just $19 for the next two days only.
